Joan Elizabeth Kollman
June 10, 1928 – March 14, 2020
Joan was born in St. Paul, MN to Paul and June Hassett. She married Al Kollman in 1948 and moved to Portland, OR. Al and Joan had 6 children: Chris, Paul, Steve, Mary, Ann and Joe. Al passed away in 2000. Joan remarried in 2005 to Cyril (Skeeter) Walker. Skeeter passed away in 2016.
Joan was a strong and unique individual, a loving wife twice, a devoted mother to her 6 children and their spouses, a caring grandma to 10 and great grandma to 11, a sister and sister-in-law, a favorite cousin and aunt and a true friend to so many. She was proud to have worked as a manager of cafeterias in the Portland Public Schools. She had an extremely positive attitude and can-do spirit. The cup was always half full. She loved God, entertaining, music and people, especially her family. She will be missed here on Earth, but her spirit still stirs within us.
